Huskies serve alongside partners for MLK Week


Proud Husky partners Starbucks and the United Way joined with the Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center to celebrate the MLK Week of Service last month.

University of Washington faculty, staff and students linked arms with more than 800 Starbucks employees to volunteer their time and talents at projects across town including the UW Farm, Capitol Hill Tool Library and 35th Annual Community March and Rally. Thank you for honoring Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy through service and solidarity!

MLKservicegroupFaculty can include a service component to their courses through service-learning with guidance from the Carlson Center. Service-learning is an opportunity for faculty members to pair academic instruction with community engagement. The model aims to build reciprocal relationship between community partner organizations and the university, while also fostering rich learning experiences for students.
